Event photography comes in all shapes and sizes, as a quick glance around this blog will demonstrate.  While some of my favourite events to have covered have been tiny, intimate affairs, there are occasions where it’s all about the size and the spectacle ….

Last summer I was asked to cover a rather grand affair – the fiftieth anniversary party of the Morson Group (google them!).  A full day of activities in the rather beautiful settings of Gawsworth Hall just outside Macclesfield.  The theme was a summer party; with the added attraction of live bands, spoken word poets, and a sit down dinner for several hundred employees and friends.  Doesn’t sound bad does it?  And frankly, it didn’t disappoint.  Throw in cream teas for 200 or so, fire eaters, numerous outdoor bars serving all manner of cocktails and champagne, some stilt walkers, vintage cars, a guest appearance by Russell Watson, and an evening topped off with a performance by Heather Small.  Sounds good, doesn’t it?  In truth, it was even better!  I’ve missed out the Motown tribute band, the warm up act ……….. I could go on and on.

Great to be part of an event that had had so much time, thought and effort put into it.  A big thanks and shout out to Alison of By Parallel Events, for not only asking me to photograph the event, but also for putting together such a superb event.  Despite the threat of awful weather in the morning, the day went without a single hitch, and absolutely bang on time.  What more can you ask?

Anyway, enough of me chatting on, here’s a tiny taster of a simply stupendous event.

So, if you’re a global company planning a big event; or if you’re a much smaller enterprise with a great idea for a party – feel free to get in touch.  Getting an event, no matter the size, photographed professionally means that you get images that give you the impression of being there.  When the memories start to fade, you can relive the event by looking through them and remember what went on.  It’s also a great way of keeping alive all the hard work that went into organising it.  A win-win in other words.

I’m best reached by email (info@martinhambleton.com) or by phone (07766 8156703) if you’re interested in talking.  It’d be lovely to hear from you about your plans.
